We just moved from the North East. I did countless research on high schools as my daughter started as a freshman. I come from a very diverse culture and I want my daughter to experience the same. Olympic is a very well diverse school. The school staff has been very helpful thus far in regards to academics. My daughter has transitioned well.
The principal was indifferent to the needs of teachers and worked toward developing a mediocre school with no apparent care for upper level classes. He has moved on and I look forward to the new principal and the changes that may possible result.
This school has a lot going for it. The faculty teaches under tight control and need to. The students are a challenge. Without extreme discipline, the diversity of the school would fly apart. The prinicipal has just left so there is a real question if the new guy can hold things together. he will not get much help as there is no parent involvement, a problem at all 5 of these schools. So far the students and faculty have not been impressed with the new principal, but it is early though.
